Yesterday (23/06/2020), Boris Johnson announced that pubs and restaurants in the UK
can open their doors again on 4th July 2020, after being closed since 20th March.
While this news was long-awaited for the hospitality industry, and an absolute
delight for many punters, there was one aspect of the reopening that has left many
pub and restaurant owners panicking. In order to be able to open, venues need to
ensure that they have a GDPR compliant contact tracing system that will record
details of all visitors in case of a further outbreak.
There has been some controversy over the news, with many people debating that owners
of hospitality venues should have been allowed further notice so that they had more
time to prepare - this has only left them with 10 days to find a contact tracing
solution that is GDPR compliant.
Introducing Sign In App
Sign In App could be a solution for pubs and restaurants looking to open their doors
on 4th July. Sign In App is a flexible visitor management system that allows you to
record data of both staff and visitors. Guests can scan a QR code for a completely
touch-free solution using contactless sign in which allows them to complete the sign
in process straight from their smartphone, or alternatively they can sign in
straight from the iPad.
Here’s just some of the benefits for pubs and restaurants looking for a GDPR
compliant contact tracing solution…
As we mentioned above, Sign In App now also offers a contactless sign in option, so
there’s no requirement to touch any other system than their own personal smartphone.
Visitors can use their smartphone by simply scanning the QR code and filling out the
sign in process from their browser. Find out more about contactless sign in
